SI8NS OF THE ZODIAC AND INFLUENCE OF THE MOON 
The Moon is supposed by some to have a special influence upon difFer- 
o;il parts of the bodies of men and animals, as it passes through- the signs of 
the Zodiac. The following cut is inserted for the sake of those who be- 
1'i.wo in this imaginary influence, and is intended to represent the part of the 
•nxly affected by the Moon when it is in any particular sign of the Zodiac. 
By finding the Moon's place in the proper column of the calendar pages, 
k'.H comparing it with this cut, the particular part which is supposed to be 
iinVcljd, will be at once seen. Thus, when the Moon is in Aries (<TP), it 
ik mpprsed to influence the head and face; when in Capricornus (V?) 

tll!>lilliT:\clC, 

<¥> Governs the Face and Head. *

THE WEATHER. 

It is be t just to state to the public that they know as much about the 
weather for the coming year as we do. No mathematician or astronomer, 
however eble in his profession, can possibly "cipher out" the weather 
When such predictions are seen in Almanacs, they should be regarded as 
mere guess work entitled to ne confidence, and as likely to fail as to be 
true. The late Dr. Olbers, the distinguisked astronomer of Germany, who 
discovered the planets Pallas and Vesta, says, as the result of careful me- 
teorological observations for fifty years in diff -rent countries, •• I believe I 
have demonstrated that tho influence of the Moon upon the weather is so 
small that it is totally lost amid tho great variety of other forces and causes 
which change the state of our atmosphere;" and that " its pretonded in- 
fluence on men, animals, or plants, is all of it due to illusion and prejudice." 
As with the influence of the Moon on the anatomy of man, however, we 
put in the best guess work, for the benefit of those who believe in it

COMPOSITION OF THE MOON. 
Every object on the surface of the Moon of the height of one hundred 
feet, is distinctly seen through Lord Rosse's telescope- Oa its surface are 
craters of extinct volcanoes, rocks and masses of stone almoit innumerable, 
tint 'there are no feigns of habitations such as ours ; no veatige of architec- 
tural remains, to show that the Moon ia, or ever was inhabited by a race af 
•mortals similar to onrseJves. No water ia'visible, no sea, no river ;'all[seeas

'esk* tomatoes peppers. Guinea squash. Plan' cucumbers, okra, squashes, snap bnanv 
cusha*, , sewee beans. New Zealand spinach. Transplant tomatoes, peppers, Guinea squall* 
cabbages and LHnee. 

/l. t;:.;rks.~~ All the above vegetables should be got in at as early a period as possible. Car 
rots should now be sown Tor a full crop, and from English seed. Lettuce should remain when 
it is «own. New Zealand spinach should be sown in hills, three feet apart each wav. Rad 
hes should be sown every three weeks. All Irish potatoes should be planted this month 

APRIL.— Sow carrots, beets, salsafy, turnips, cabbages, cauliflowers, broco!i ; tomatoes 
pepper*, radishes, lettuce, celery, leeks. Plant okra, snap beans, squashes, sewee beans ea 
cambers, cusbaws, melons. Transplant cabbages, tomatoes, peppers, (Juinea squashes'. Pic* 
out celery. 

lie murks.— The sowing of the main crop of carrots for summer and autumn, ought, not to \n 
delayed longer than this month, as they will be easily killed when up. The seed should Ik 
from Europe, or they will run to seed in the fall. Cucumbers, squashes, and melons, do uo 
succeed well if delayed until now, but a few may be sown. 

M AY. — Sow cabbages, savoys, carrots, beets, turnips, cauliflowers, brocoli. celery, radishe 
Plant snap beans. Transplant, cabbages. Pick out celery. 

Remarks.— -There is little probability of eitherbeets, pnrsnips, carrots, or turnips sneered - 

ing at this season, espeetnlly the last; yet if wanted, a few may be ventured — -under vet; 

avbrable circumstances, they may "succeed. If carrots be sown, the ground should be shade* 

nd kept moist, and this continued to the plants sometime after they are up, or they will b< 

filled by the hot sun. 

JUNK.— Sow cauliflowers, brocoli. cabbages, carrots, tomatoes. Plant snap beans, oki" 
Transplant celery, cabbages, leeks. Pick out cauliflowers, brooch, and celery. 

liciiui.rks — This month is generally very dry and hot, and all the oiops recommended to br 
sown now, must be protected troni the sun: most of lb-em should have been sown in A piil, and 
it is only in ease of fail me or omission thatihey should now be sown: the month may be con 
sidered bad for the sowing of seeds generally. 

JULY.— Sow early Dutch turnips, ruta baga, carrots, parsnips, cabbages, can li [lowers, brocoli 
endive, radishes, spinach. Plant snap beans, fria.ii potatoes, melons. Transplant cabbages 
celery, cauliflowers, brocoli, tomatoes, and leeks. 

Remarks — A few only of carrots, parsnips, spinach, or radishes, should be sown as it is no 
very probable that they will succeed, unless well protected from the sun for some length of time 
while young. The early Dutch turnips should also be sown towards the middle am! las! oi >h( 
month, in small quantises. The Irish potatoes will bo fit for use in October, and the tomaloes 
will furnish a supply when the spring-grown crop has ceased to bear, and then con{inue til 
killed by a frost. 

AUGUST. — Sow peas, early Dutch and other varieties of turnips, ruta bnga, onions, cisoba 
ges, cauliflowers, brocoli, black Spanish radishes, carrots, beels, parsnips, saloufy, letluce, and 
etjui^e Plant snap beans. Transplantcabbages, cauliflowers. broeo'i, celery, ruta baga, endive. 

Uemarks — Not, much can be expected from peas sown this 0:011th, as they will be ur-cl 
crippled by the high winds and rain which we usually have: but if much wauled a few run > 
ba ventured. The beets and spinach are liable to the attacks of the worms, whijb destroy 
their leaves: should they escape these they will be line. 

SHI'TKMKRR. — Sow early Dutch and other varieties of turnips, rulabaga, beets, Swi; 
chard, mangle wurzle, carrots, parsnips, salsafy, lettuce, spinach, cabbages, onions, radishes

USEFUL FAMILY RECIPES, &c. 

Sore Tursat. — Common salt, slowly dissolved in the mouth, and swaN 
lowed, just before going to bed, is very effectual in ordinary cases of sore 
throat. 

To Make Prime Visc.ogar. — A correspondent of the Ohio Cultivator 
Touches for the merit of the following recipe for making vinegar: — "Take 
and mix one quart of molasses, three gallon* of (rain) water, and one pint 
of yeast. Let it ferment and stand for four weeks, and you will have the 
beat of Vinegar." 

Tomato Catspp.— Have the tomatoes ripe aad fresh off the vines, wash 
them elean in cold water, and put them immediately into the kettle, crush- 
ing eacli one i» the hand as it is dropped in; hang them over the fire, and 
stir occasionally, until thev boil about five minute* ; then strain, first through 
a cullender, and »ext through a sieve. Get the liquid over the hr* again 
aeon a* possible, boil, skim and stir, until it is reduced at least one-half — if 
two thirds, all the better ; add to every gal'on of this condensed liquor two 
teaspetnfuls of salt, half an ounce of cayenne pepper, same of black pep. 
per, and clove*, a pint good cider vinegar, with any other spice te palate. — 
We prefer an ounce of mace, and four ounces of cinnamon, to the gallon. 
Catsup prepared in tails way tastes of the tomato, and will keep for years, 
either in bottles or a large stone jug. When required for use, just shake it, 
and pour out. We have never known it to iaiL 

Cure For Stings. — Almost any sting, except the "sting of conscience," 
may be cured by patting some spirits of turpentine on the place. 

To Polish Stoves. — Make a weak solution of alum, aud mix your ''Brit- 
ish Lustre" with it— two teaspoonfuls to the giil of alum water. Brush the 
stove, when c»ld, with the mixture; then, with a dry brush, and some dry 
Lustre, polish till perfectly dry. In twenty minutes, your stove will serve 
you for a mirror. 

Lime Water For Hens. — Keep yeur hens constantly supplied with lime 
water, placed in a vessel convenient of access for them. The increase : n 
eggs will be very great, if your hens are otherwise well csred for. 

Woollens. — To extract oil or grease fiom carpets or other woollen goods 
sponge them with strong chloric ether. 

Burns and Scalds. — Mix equal parts raw linseed oil and lime water, and 
apply to the wound five or six times a day. O" An effectual remedy always 
at hand, is to dr*dge wheat flour instantly upon the wound, fo a* to exclude 
the air. The relief is almost instantaneous, and it heals rapidly. 

Drying Sweet Cor«i. — When the corn is fully grown and filled with 
milk, gather it, and with a sharp knife cut off the grains close to the cob 
Spread it in tin baking pans, and place it around the stove, and dry as soon 
as possible. When thorough'} dried put it into a coarse cotten bag, keep- 
ing it near the stove, occasionally shaking it up, so as te have it thoroughly 
dry. Keep it in a dry place until wanted for use. When wanted for cook- 
ing, put it in warm water, or equal parts of milk and water is preferable, 
and let it swell out. Cook it 15 or 2iJ minutes, and bring to table sea.s«ned 
with butter, salt and pepper to taste- 

Economv m Bread. — Twenty-six peunds and thirteen ounces of good 
bread have been made ffom fourteen pounds of flour and one and a half 
pounds ef rice, by the following method : Tie up the rice in a thick linen

becomes a sinoeth paste ; mix this while warm with the flour, adding the 
inual quantity of yeast and salt; allow the dough to rise near the fire, and 



23 



d : vide info loaves. It is affirmed, on high authority, that flour thus treated 
will yield fifty per cent, more bread than by the ordinary method. 

Antidote Against Poison, — Many lives inieht be saved by a knowledge 
of Ikis simple recipe: A large teaspoonful of mustard, mixed in a tumbler 
of warm water, and swallowed as noon as possible, acts as an instant emetic, 
■sufficiently powerful to remove all that is lodged in the stomach. 

A quantity of magnesia or lime water drank immediately will neutralize 
oxalic acid ; corrosive sublimate is quickly neutralized by white of eggs ; 
white aricnic by hydrated oxide of iron — administer quickly.

wound which threatens lockjaw. Renew the poultice of mashed beet, as

G6od Advice. — Girls, let me tell you a stubborn truth. No you«g wo- 
man ever looked so well to a sensible man as when dressed in a neat, 
plain, modest attire, without a single ornament about her person. the 
looks then a? though she possessed worth in herself, and needed no arii- 
ficial rigging to enhance her value. If a young lady would spend as much 
time in cultivating her mind, (raining her temper, and chemhing kii;d~ 
ness, meekness, mercy and other good qualities, as most of them do in 
extra dress and ornaments to increase their personal charms, she would 
at a glance be known among a thousand. Her character would be read 
in her countenance.
